Common Notions is creating radical inspiration by any media necessary

Common Notions is a publishing house and programming platform that advances new formulations of liberation and living autonomy. Our books provide timely reflections, clear critiques, and inspiring strategies that amplify movements for social justice.

With a contribution as low as $10 a month, we will double our publication list in the coming year, sustain our programming efforts, and—most crucially— grow our team and ability to pay ourselves for the work we do.

Movements are sustained by people like you, whose fugitive words, deeds, and dreams bend against the world of domination and exploitation. Movement publishing is much the same! Help us publish the necessary and timely words, deeds, and dreams that our movements and our worlds need.

By any media necessary, Common Notions seek to nourish the imagination and generalize common notions about the creation of other worlds beyond state and capital. Our publications trace a constellation of critical and visionary meditations on the organization of freedom. Inspired by various traditions of autonomism and liberation—in the U.S. and internationally, historically and emerging from contemporary movements—our publications provide resources for a collective reading of struggles past, present, and to come.

One hundred comrades help us cover basic operating expenses and keep the lights on. 

Three hundred comrades guarantee we can put out more than six new, urgent, and necessary publications a year.

Five hundred comrades come together and we can support our staff each month in creating and disseminating beautiful books.

Seven hundred comrades help us support our international collaborators in writing and translating important texts from the frontlines of social struggles around the world (e.g., Mexico, Greece, Spain, Italy, France, Japan, Palestine, India)!

One thousand comrades come together and our collective mission grows to support existing movement media collectives around the world and help build lasting international movement infrastructure in order to publish books, pamphlets, posters, tee-shirts, podcasts, short documentary films—propaganda by any media necessary!
